Thousands of frogs converged in Moratuwa. Is it a sign of an Earthquake ?

Bookmark Thousands of frogs converged in Moratuwa. Is it a sign of an Earthquake ?

Environmentalists are investigating the sudden surge of thousands of frogs that converged on to the Moratuwa area earlier this morning sending panic among the residents.

Jagath Gunawardene, with the Centre for Environmental Studies said that this was perhaps the first such recorded incident in the country and may have occurred owing to possible climatic changes, but however the issue needs to be investigated further.

“Such cases have been recorded in other tropical countries mainly in the African region”, he added. The frogs which entered homes and were seen on the streets in large numbers had vanished shortly before dusk. “However there is a possibility that they could return to the same area at night fall”, Mr. Gunawardene added.

But this is a Precedent from China….

On 5th of May 2008, Many Chinese locals noticed thousands of frogs on the move. They were seen traveling without fear of traffic as they crossed streets in mass floods.

Many Chinese sensed the migration as a bad omen of a coming natural disaster, but the Chinese government told them that it was just a natural migration for the purpose of propagation. This calmed the people and no one took the omen very seriously.

On Monday, 12th of May, at about 2:45pm, central China region recorded a 7.8-magnitude quake which occured near Wenchuan County, Sichuan province, that killed nearly 10,000 people.  As for the Frogs and their omen, Chinese scientists stated animals have much better sense than human on detecting the natural disasters like this.

  1. Official figures says 70,000 are confirmed dead in Sichuan earthquake and 18,000 are still missing. Frog migration is a possible precondition(sign) for a disaster. It should be looked scientifically not as bad omen.

    • World will not end in 2012. Trust me…you can celebrate the 31st night (2012-12-31) anywhere you want. We will witness only regional destructions such as tsunami, earthquakes, fires, hurricane, floods, volcano, small meteor strikes etc. These disasters are not new. Get out from superstitious beliefs such as irrational predictions, bad omens, horoscopes, astrology etc.

  2. well people it is raining pel mell from yesterday and worse today upto now . most of the roads are flooded by now in the capital of serendib!we are allready heading for some thing bad i assume? hope things wont get out of hand with gods help.
    better be alert!

  3. God will not help..
    governemnt and public has to manage the city (or environment) and to keep it clean. Atleast it should be starting with proper garbage management. the cause for this is bad conditions of drains and garbagefull lakes and canals..
    we have to help ourselves..

  4. Apparently, frogs gather in large numbers (in thousands) during mating season, especially during monsoon periods or after heavy rainfall.

    If the frogs moved AWAY from a certain place (rather than gather to one), then it might have been a sign of a natural disaster. Because not only frogs but most animals can feel the seismic waves which us humans cannot feel.

  5. ahh heard about this today, but a earthquake happening in srilanka is very as we are not on the ring of fire. But nothing is impossible and frogs do have the ability to sense the earth movements so better be on the alert
